During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have received a lot of items that aren’t on our Standard Shopping List (link below). While we are very grateful for everyone’s generosity, we are struggling to manage the number of non-standard items we have received. We therefore politely request that donors now avoid giving items that aren’t on our Standard Shopping List unless specifically requested by us.
Please click here to view our Standard Shopping List, which includes all the items we give out in our food packages.
We will also ask for specific items when our stock is running low (Priority List/Getting Low below), at particular times of the year through our Seasonal Activities page or to meet a particular need.
PLEASE NO: perishable food, out-of-date food, alcohol or medicines
Items can be brought to the Church:
During Foodbank opening times (midday to 2.00pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays)
Sunday mornings - suspended at the moment due to the COVID-19 outbreak
For the Foodbank to remain open during the current unprecedented situation, we have implemented different operating procedures from normal. Donations should be dropped off outside (to the left of) the entrance to the Church Hall (up the hill behind the Church) during Foodbank opening times. When doing so, please:
Maintain a distance of 2 metres (6 feet) between yourself and anyone else dropping off donations
Consolidate donations to limit the number of visits
If you have a large donation of food to drop off, please email our Stock Co-ordinator to arrange a time so we can do it in a COVID-safe way
Please also consider donating money instead of food to enable us to buy stock as we need it.
